News Highlights

Superintendent Dr. Tony Watlington launched the planning process for Strategic Plan 2027 at the April 12 Board of Education Meeting, and he wants your input.

Superintendent Dr. Tony Watlington launched the planning process for Strategic Plan 2027 at the April 12 Board of Education Meeting, and he wants your input.

"I want this strategic plan not just to reduce gaps in student performance as measured by test scores, I want this plan to be so far-reaching and so bold that we create life-changing opportunities for all of our children,” Watlington said.

Strategic Plan 2027 will allow us to build on our successes, harness our innovation and cohesively utilize the unique opportunities that have been given to us through Renewal and our $26 million federal grant. We’re striving to create an equity-focused strategic plan that builds on our strengths, aggressively tackles opportunity gaps, and takes on inclusive community engagement.

Watlington is seeking feedback from individuals across our community through a stakeholder survey (click here to participate), focus groups and a steering committee made up of community leaders and RSS parents, students, and staff. 

"It’s essential that we have feedback from lots of groups in our community. If we’re truly going to have a district strategic plan that all of us believe in, feel good about and support, we all have to have some skin in the game,” Watlington said. “At the end of the day, this won’t be Tony Watlington’s strategic plan. This won’t be the Rowan-Salisbury Schools Board of Education’s strategic plan. This will be our strategic plan.”

Strategic Plan 2027 will launch in July. For more information, visit the Strategic Plan webpage on our website.

 

Participate in the Stakeholder Survey

Based on guidance from the CDC, we have added several additional symptoms to our At-Home COVID Symptoms Screening process and have modified some safety protocols.

Based on guidance from the CDC, we have added several additional symptoms to our At-Home COVID Symptoms Screening process and have modified some safety protocols.

All staff and students are still required to undergo daily home-based symptom screenings. You will find an updated At-Home COVID Symptom Screening document attached, which will walk you through the symptom screening process. When you or your child reports to school on Monday, please add the following symptoms to your at-home screening routine:

  • Diarrhea or vomiting

  • Headache (with severe or sudden onset)

  • Sore throat

All staff and students must disclose and stay home/go home if:

  • They have tested positive for COVID-19

  • They have recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19 within the past 10 days

  • They have a household member that has been diagnosed with COVID-19

Anyone who meets any of the circumstances above may not return to school until they have met the criteria for return. We urge everyone to remain vigilant, check for COVID symptoms regularly, and stay home if any symptoms are present.

 

Thank you for continuously monitoring yourself and your children for COVID symptoms throughout this pandemic. We appreciate your efforts to keep our community healthy and safe.

We value your feedback as we plan for our students' future.

Children are our community's most valuable asset, and we value your feedback as we plan for their future. Please complete this survey to guide us as we develop our strategic plan. We are listening!   https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5C2YJ8F

 

Again this year, we are using the online registration process called ‘PowerSchool Registration’ for all new and returning students.

Parents with an email address in PowerSchool should have received an email message on how to begin this registration process. If you did not receive an email, please contact your school’s data manager for registration information.

In order for your child to receive their iPad for the 2021-2022 school year, you must complete the online registration process. If you have questions or concerns, please contact your child’s school and they will be glad to assist you. 

Again, all new and returning students for Rowan-Salisbury Schools must complete the online registration process. You can access the registration site by going to www.rssed.org/registration
